Due to this, it’s an ideal choice for weekend trips although it’s possible to to benefit from the services of accommodation and boarding houses of various standards throughout the year.
The picturesque harbor of Gocek is principally a yachting center. During the summer the marinas are buzzling with activity as the boats load up with guestss for the Blue Voyage and the cafes and restaurants along the harbor do a lively trade.
The bays of Gocek host some of the most beautiful and historical sites in the region.
It’s believed that Gocek and its environs were the ancient city ofDaedalos. In the records of Strabo and Herodotus, Daedalos is mentioned as a Lycian port. Unfortunately, not much of the city has survived to the present day, probably due to earthquakes in ancient times.
